Whoa, talk about meta. The WSJ is reporting that the new Kindle, to be announced later today, will include an exclusive work from Stephen King that integrates a "Kindle-like device" within the story.

Apparently, the exclusive may be a limited time offer before the piece is available to everyone down the line. But how great would it be if, somehow, the non-Kindle-owning public got a different copy of the story that's missing the Kindle? Maybe an absurd doppelganger could go in the e-reader's place, like a banana or giant foam finger.

That'd show 'em, Jeff Bezos. That'd show 'em. [WSJ via Engadget]
